As for what I'm listening to, mostly Radiohead's new album "The King of Limbs".

My Top 10
Here are my Top 10 bands/musicians of all time... most of whom I listen to at least once a week... ranked in order!
1.The Beatles (best songwriters of all time)
2. Led Zeppelin (masters of rock and roll)
3. Tool (best progressive/experimental/metal band of the 90's)
4. Radiohead (way ahead of their time)
5. Ween (criminally underrated songwriters, masters of every genre)
6. Björk(one of the most unique and creative artists of our time)
7. Metallica (their first 5 albums are still the best heavy metal ever)
8. Soundgarden/Alice in Chains (tie between the two best grunge bands)
9. Pink Floyd (progressive, trippy, experimental bliss)
10. Mike Patton (prolific genius behind Mr. Bungle, Tomahawk, and Faith No More)
Runners up: King Crimson, The Mars Volta, Queens of the Stone Age, Primus, Black Sabbath, etc...

I am surprised 10,000 Days is so low on your list. From a composition standpoint it is far and away their most complex. Wings and Rosetta Stoned are remarkable songs.
How the heck did you manage to forget Salival! shame on you EA
Most underrated Tool song... gotta be 4 degrees

Also, I tend to not consider Salival to be an actual album since it's mostly just live versions of previous songs (plus a couple kick ass covers). It definitely rocks, though!
EDIT: Just for fun, here's the first 10 songs from my ranked list of all Tool's songs. (I like lists, as you've probably noticed).
1. Third Eye
4. Forty-Six & 2
7. The Grudge
10. Rosetta Stoned

Out of the 8 times I've seen Tool live, the best was probably when I got first row seats situated directly in front of Danny Carey. Best two hours of my life.

Funny that no one gives them a hard time about taking 5 years between albums, whereas GRRM gets so much sh!t from everyone! He's a craftsman concerned with quality over quanitity, just like them.
Anyways, I think I'm derailing this thread (this is what happens when you put two Tool fans in a room together, LOL!). Now listening to Crack the Skye by Mastodon. The first new metal band I've discovered in a long time.

Difficult to rank but my top ten would be:
1. Porcupine Tree - only discovered them a few years ago but now own every album. Love their musicianship, variety in styles across albums and their sound production.
2. The Beatles - grew up listening to them in my parent's car, agreed the Lennon/McCartney combo can't be beaten. I love "Hey Jude" and "A Day in the Life", and Paul's singing on "Oh! Darling".
3. ...And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead - great art-rock band from Texas.
4. Radiohead (The Bends and Ok are two of my top 10 albums).
5. Iron Maiden - especially the first 6 or 7 albums. Steve Harris is such a great bass player/songwriter (and a great bloke!).
6. Metallica - although I don't listen to them much anymore, still have to be up there.
7. Rancid - great punk/ska band.
8. Supergrass - pop/rock from the UK, shame they broke up.
9. OSI - electronic/heavy mix courtesy of ex DT and Fates Warning musicians.
10. Baroness - sludge metal from the States.
plus Anathema, Opeth, Frost*, Dead Kennedy's, etc.

Leprous, from Norway - their second album "Tall Poppy Syndrome" is well written with a wide variety of vocals, can't wait for their new release in a few months.
Also Disillusion's Gloria album:
Also Indukti, from Poland (many people see a lot of Tool influence):
